The Miami Heat Fear Chris Bosh’s Blood Clots Have Returned
Horrible news coming out Miami as the reports say the blood clots in the lung that Chris Bosh had last year that kept him out of the final 30 games may have returned again. To manage the problem Bosh must take blood thinners, and therefore can’t play basketball or be involved in any physical contact.
It is a blood-clot scare for Chris Bosh, source tells AP. Source also insists that Bosh’s season has not been declared over.

The Miami Herald has a few more details:
A person in touch with the Heat’s front office said a worrisome problem surfaced Monday, beyond merely a strained calf. Another source said his life was not at risk.
Asked directly if Bosh had been diagnosed with a blood clot in his calf, agent Henry Thomas responded by text: “Too soon for all of that…. Too soon to report that.”
The Heat did not comment.
One option for Chris Bosh may be a mesh filter in his leg, which blocks clots from moving to lungs/heart. Can’t play on blood-thinning meds.
